Artificers represent many of the high-magic elements of Eberron as a campaign setting. The artificer uses Intelligence-based Infusions instead of typical magics and psionics. Infusions work similarly to spells but must be implanted in a specific object, giving it a temporary magic effect. Artificers receive a number of craft reserve points every level. These points can be used instead of experience points in the creation of new magic items.
Thus Artificers are able to make use of item creation feats without the experience penalty that other spell casters must take. Specific infusions can be cast to repair or inflict damage to any creature with a construct subtype. At fourth level Artificers may craft a homunculus companion.
They can use rods, staves, and wands as implements. Artificers can also use arcane spells called infusions to imbue objects with magical power, and focus on buffing , healing and protecting allies. Many of their powers relate to weapons or armor. It includes three subclasses: the alchemist, focused on potions and sliders, the artilerist, focused on ranged weaponry and defenses, and the battle smith, focused on constructs and combat.
Artificer made it into 4th Edition, but was dropped [when] 5th Edition came out in ". It might be a bit more trouble than its worth". The answer is that if you want to tinker with magical inventions, the process takes time. The answer has surprisingly little to do with the game itself. Instead, it has everything to do with the setting of Eberron in this latest sourcebook.
He wrote "the version we get rather effectively combines all those elements into a workable, balanced class that feels true to the spirit of the Artificer. Artificers create magical items and use tools to work their magic, and the subclasses Alchemist, Artillerist, Battle Smith give an Artificer some distinct roles that they can fill. DDO community manager Amanda Grove said she enjoyed playing the class in the game, although she said using two hands to shoot rather than one was difficult.
Artificers are an interesting support class but I can see lots of solo builds coming out of it as well".

DnD 5e - The Artificer Handbook Last Updated: March 17th, Disclaimer I will use the color coding scheme which has become common among Pathfinder build handbooks, which is simple to understand and easy to read at a glance. Red: Bad, useless options, or options which are extremely situational. Orange: OK options, or useful options that only apply in rare circumstances. Green: Good options. Blue: Fantastic options, often essential to the function of your character. Introduction This guide is for the finalized version of the Artificer class.
True Artificer (5e Class)
An artificer begins each day with the ability to empower one magic item, and gains an additional empowerment at each milestone. You must spend a short rest with an item in order to empower it. An item may be empowered in two ways: Impart Energy: You recharge the daily power of a magic item. An item can only be recharged only once per day in this way. Augment Energy: You infuse a weapon or implement with a reservoir of energy that lasts until the end of your next extended rest or until it is expended. An implement or weapon can be augmented only once per day in this way. Healing Infusion At the end of an extended rest, the artificer creates two healing infusions that last until the end of the next extended rest.
Arcane Sense[ edit ] Artificers experience a deep natural understanding of how magical items work and all the power that lies within. As an action, until the end of your next turn, you can sense the presence of magic within 30 feet of you. If you sense magic in this way, you can use your action to see a faint aura around any visible creature or object in the area that bears magic, and you learn its school of magic, if any. If you instead touch a creature, you learn what Spells, if any, are currently affecting it. If it is a magic item or some other magic-imbued object, you learn its properties and how to use them, whether it requires Attunement to use, and how many charges it has, if any. You learn whether any Spells are affecting the item and what they are. If the item was created by a spell, you learn which spell created it.
